From creating a sense of space by removing clutter through design to bringing in plenty of natural light, renovators across the country are transforming their bathrooms from functional spaces into modern retreats.
To kick start your inspiration search, here are 4 of our favourite bright and airy bathrooms from our Project Inspiration Gallery.
This ensuite in Clayfield, Queensland by Kalka embodies the best of day spa design. From the soft textured wall panels to the pleated vanity, the calming effect of wood contributes heavily to the sense of serenity in the room. The freestanding bath is perfectly positioned to enjoy a long soak at the end of the day or over the weekend.
Brushed gold fixtures throughout amp up the luxe feel and tie the room together beautifully. It’s day spa living at its finest.
The immediate sense of calm in this main bathroom in Newtown, Victoria is emphasised with large windows that diffuse a soft glow throughout.
This bathroom by Lachlan Ryan Construction, McLachlan Plumbing and We Are Kin Interiors demonstrates that a lot can be done with a simple colour palette by combining different textures, from the subway tiles to the traditional shaker style vanity cabinetry. Keeping it simple and timeless with chrome tapware, the timber benchtop adds a touch of warmth to define this bathroom as the perfect retreat.
Size doesn’t need to be a factor when creating a relaxing space, as this ensuite by Lifestyle BM and SmartSpace Interiors in NSW demonstrates. By keeping the floor free from clutter where possible, the room feels larger — a feeling supported by the tall shower rail and clear, frameless shower screen.
Swathes of light play with shadow in a way that brings the outside in. A simple colour palette is executed perfectly with a pop of colour in the vanity and the terrazzo flooring, which will exhibit different shades of colour depending on the time of day.
This bathroom by Watara Homes and Constructions and Essential Plumbing and Gas epitomises everything we love about a bright and airy bathroom. By offsetting clean, large white tiles with a striking wood herringbone tile feature wall, the day spa theme as truly been captured in the space.
Once two rooms, the now combined space makes a strong impression. The curved profile of the fixtures contrast against the angular tiles to a pleasing effect. The focus on wooden textures — the feature wall, timber vanity and wooden veneer of the flooring — unites the space wonderfully.
